Cruises that visit or depart from Auckland sail to other ports in New Zealand, as well as to Australia, South Pacific islands and Asia.

New Zealand’s largest city -- and the world’s largest Polynesian city -- sprawls across an isthmus positioned between two harbors. The “City of Sails” boasts more boats per capita than any other city. Queen Street is the major shopping area, while Victoria Park Market offers food and crafts in a re-created European-style village, and the Parnell area has art galleries and antique shops in restored Victorian buildings. Some excursions introduce cruise passengers to Maori culture, while others head to sheep and cattle farms for a glimpse of New Zealand’s rural life. Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World offers a look at the marine and birdlife of Antarctica. Beachgoers will want to head to Takapuna, four miles north of the city.
